    I’m surprised at the term “across” the lake. Since the lake flows north from Lake George Village to it’s outlet of the LaChute river at Ticonderoga into Lake Champlain, should it be stated the swim was “up” the lake?

      There is really no current to speak of, it takes years for the water in the lake to change over via the springs and the streams feeding it. She swam down the lake, as South is always referred to as down and North is up.

      Thanks for commenting Catherine. The time was actually 17 hours 7 minutes and 58 seconds. I’m her husband and kayak support. Very proud of her accomplishments.
